For Immediate Release
The New York Times has published a story that includes serious allegations about our peer and associate Elliott Kline, who conducts most of his public activities as “Eli Mosley.” These allegations are disturbing and, if they are shown to be true, would lead us to reconsider our relationship with Eli.
We were introduced to Eli through Identity Evropa, an organization to which he belonged and over which he assumed leadership in the second half of 2017. Although Eli has never been a paid staff person at AltRight.com, the National Policy Institute, or any project or organization we have lead, he has been an important collaborator and friend for almost a year. This is because he expresses a high level of energy and agency and has worked tirelessly as a volunteer to make possible several important events in which we participated. Remarkably, after Eli’s real identity was revealed to the public and he suffered a number of acute personal setbacks, including dismissal from his job, the level of his activity actually increased. We are grateful for his contributions, and we admire his enthusiasm.
Eli has indicated that he will document his military background and correct what the New York Times has reported about him. We are happy to give him time to do so, and we bear in mind that there are many sides to every story. While that process is ongoing, we wish him the best in his personal and professional endeavors.
